College of Science Excellence in Research Award
Each year, the College of Science selects an overall award winner from the Excellence in Research award winners selected by each department.
In recognition of the fact that different disciplines have different academic and research cultures, departments are free to define their own criteria for selecting their nominees. In general, the student’s work should be a significant contribution and show originality, creativity, and a level of independence appropriate to the discipline.
